Fresh of the release of his new digital music player, Pono, Neil Young went on record with his thoughts on the resurgence of vinyl sales.
“A lot of people that buy vinyl today don’t realize that they’re listening to CD masters on vinyl, and that’s because the record companies have figured out that people want vinyl. And they’re only making CD masters in digital, so all the new products that come out on vinyl are actually CDs on vinyl, which is really nothing but a fashion statement.”
Whether you agree with Neil or not he’s still selling his new album in all formats. neilyoung.com
Rumour has it Young is working on a new album for 2015 that could drop at any moment.
